Another cracker!

Its been the best weekend of the year so far, yesterday was the same and its been another 'cracker' today, I have been away all weekend boating and I have come back with a sun tan to rival anyone that has just spent a month on a sun bed, I was sceptical about the weather this morning as it was very slow to get going but it is lovely and it has been incredibly hot again all day, as you can imagine with the nice weather comes the folks, and out in their droves today to worship the sun and enjoy a nice relaxing, drink or ice cream sat with their feet up on the wharf watching the boats glide by, and glide by they have done today, loads of them in fact, it has been much busier today on the canal, and about time too!

The lads have been busy today, Fred with blacking, sorting out the day boats after the weekend, generally doing jobs around the wharf, seeing to peoples needs on the incoming boats, Mick has commissioned Windsors new engine which Bernard fitted recently, that is purring away in the back ground as I write the blog, the noise is somewhat drowned out by the tweeting birds on the roof of the shop, As David mentioned yesterday, Steve is back from his extended holiday in Spain and is now up to his neck finishing off a private job that we have in at the moment, that leaves Angela, Denise and our latest addition to the work force, Charlot or Charlie for short, she is here on a temporary basis in between University and Will be helping out in the tea room.

That's it from me for today, I have a boat to go and view over in Leicester before I head home tonight, so until tomorrow maybe. Simon
